Houston sets next goal

Houston sets next goal

Dundee United have been told to get back on target following a couple of blank performances in their last two games.

The Tangerines failed to find the back of the net against either St Johnstone or Ross County but at least managed to keep it similarly tight
at the opposite end.

Now boss Peter Houston is hoping his side can finally return to the goal-trail against Hearts this coming weekend.

"I really don't have a lot of complaints with the players — their effort is fantastic and we've got four clean sheets out of five games," Houston told the Dundee Courier. "What we have to do now is work on the other side and try and score more because we've had a couple of zero-zeros in the last couple of games and obviously the Kilmarnock game was a disappointment."

Meanwhile, Houston is still waiting for some positive news regarding on loan Sparta Prague striker Milos Lacny, who is currently sidelined by a knee injury.

"One day he comes in and he looks good and he's training hard with the boys and the next day he's swelled up a wee bit," he added. "Milos is not training with us, he's still with the physio, so you can imagine there's still a wee bit to go."
